    agreed...i think most are honest folks that arent going to take a bunch of great ties and leave some mediocre ones. We're all good peeps, i really doubt anyone will be less than thrilled with the contents of the mystery box.

    Any ideas for rules about adding bowties? I wouldn't mind seeing someone take a tie and replace it with a bow tie and a long tie to add to variety.

    go for it. think of it like this, for every one (or two) you take, put one more in than you took.

    I would be comfortable with two ties taken, and at two ties placed back. Any more and I don't think I'd be real comfortable. Not for any particular reason I can put my finger on...it's just a gut thing really.

    It really is awesome. I think he's setting the bar exceptionally high from the very start for the rest of us though.

    As you wish, but If it worked like that, the person getting the box next would only have the ties the prior person placed in there before them to choose from.

    So let me get this straight. The box is going to start with 4 ties, and by the time it gets to me there will be like 12 ties, 4 pocket squares, and 3 bowties? Man, being at the end is going to be pretty awesome.

    Well, obviously some folks have mentioned dropping in more ties than they took. So I anticipate a surplus as this progresses. Admittedly, I don't have the expansive collection many here do, but a few mentioned putting in more than they take, and starting with four was a good start thanks to Ed. So short response is that I think we'll be just fine if we replace at least the same as we pull.

    if this is anything like the fragrance swap, we may need a bigger boat for round 2. ;) round 1 is gonna be good, but round 2 will be tops i think.

    There can be a separate tie swap. Marvel and DC... there need not be just one.
